An end to single-family zoned neighborhoods? | California SB 9 and SB 10 Explained

In the middle of September, Governor Newsom signed into law Senate Bill 9 and Senate Bill 10. If you haven’t heard about these bills, their intention is to alleviate California’s housing crisis by effectively putting an end to traditional single-family zoning in neighborhoods statewide. How could this affect you and your neighborhood?

Taking effect January 1, 2022, SB 9 and SB 10 will make it easier for Californians to build more than one housing unit on many properties that have been exclusively zoned for single-family homes for decades. It will also give cities greater flexibility to place small apartment complexes in neighborhoods near public transit.

Stay tuned to find out the specifics of each bill.
